Default Magnificent-&-Minor Affiliation

The Magnificent-&-Minor Affiliation

Question to be handled in whatever way you feel makes sense to you, please feel free. If a link details this better than you could possibly articulate, sure. But I wouldn’t be opposed to the wit you might say in brevity either.

For all who claim to be “in” Christ (and we are),
What significance at all can anyone say is present of themselves before the Creator / Provider?
For further contemplation, although the Lord himself considers each child of God in the fold, being bought by His sacrificial atonement, but other than this, does anything at all remain that would enter that fold?

Complex or simple? Residual value, or dust?

Is it not so, for carnality to survive it must first seek some rational means to proceed past the gates of acceptability, and if it is essential to exist and continue there by means of this rationale, then it is safe to conclude that an un-protected gate was in place from the first; to go right on and accept the conviction that is engaged in nurturing un-restrained base-ownership, rather than possessing fundamental mortification?
"Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time,
but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the
things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of
men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.

Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively applied to myself
and Apollos for your sakes, so that in us you may learn not to
what is written, so that no one of you will become arrogant
in behalf of one against the other. For who regards you as superior?
What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it,
why do you boast as if you had not received it?"

(1 Corinthians 4:5-7)
The act of reckoning oneself to fundament mortification of mind for instance, is one simple truth against a world that is constantly rationalizing the carnality the natural one loves. Yet this acknowledgment short-circuits all including our nature of mind and heart.
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are
these, , variance, emulations, , that they which do
such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

“for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die;
but if by the Spirit you are putting to death
the deeds of the body, you will live.”

"But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death
because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness."

(Galatians 5:19-21, Romans 8:13, Romans 8:10)

n. The act of varying.
n. The state or quality of being variant or variable; a variation.
n. A difference between what is expected and what actually occurs.

n. Effort or ambition to equal or surpass another.
So if there is any value anyone brings to the table (whatever table of substance you choose) on account of what the Lord benefits this one or that one person with, then IMO, as a jubilant Body of Christ draws towards God, that possible carnality of mind of any of the works of the flesh should be assumed into supply-side righteous communication and no other “motives” (V-5) are at all are taken into account. Glory to God!
